Product: ISC Suspension Shift Knob

This is from ISCís blog/website describing the different styles.

The ISC Comfort series knob is our most popular knob. The perfect round shape is ideal for the natural contour of your hand. Made of anodized aluminum this knob gives a better shift feel and compliments any interior theme your vehicle may have. Represent your favorite coilover inside your car with the ISC knob! Comfort- 125G

The Sport series ISC knob is a hybrid between the design of the comfort and the Race series. Still easy on the hand but has a bit of a flat top for quick precise shifts. Made of anodized aluminum this knob gives a better shift feel and compliments any interior theme your vehicle may have. Represent your favorite coilover inside your car with the ISC knob! Sport- 145G

The Race series ISC knob is ready for anything you can throw at it. With a massive lateral surface area this knob can make fast shifting more precise and accurate. Made of anodized aluminum this knob gives a better shift feel and compliments any interior theme your vehicle may have. Represent your favorite coilover inside your car with the ISC knob! Race- 165G

I choose the Sport series knob because I liked how it looked and I prefer a smaller shift knob since I have smaller hands.

Initial Impression: When I opened the box to reveal the knob I was very impressed by the weight and the color. My knob is the anodized red version. To me itís the perfect color, not obnoxiously bright, and not dark enough to be maroon. Perfect. The weight was very similar to my Kartboy Shift Knob which is around the weight I like.

Finish: The ISC knob as I stated above is a very nice anodized red. The color options are pretty endless which is good. They make a gold, and even a purple knob which is great for people who wish to really customize the look of their cars. The finish is nice without any imperfections. The only thing I could suggest to ISC is to have the logo laser engraved into the Aluminum so that it doesnít rub off which I worry it may after extended use.

Drivability: I received my ISC Shift Knob on Tuesday. Since having it I can say that I havenít had any drivability issues. The knob as I keep saying is the perfect weight, it works very well and provides quick shifts and I am really enjoying it. According to ISC the knob is 145G. Unlike my Kartboy Shift Knob it starts cold but warms up nicely and really just feels comfortable in the hand. My Kartboy did not.

Overall Impression: Overall I am a big fan of this shift knob, good weight, great finish, and a really nice way to represent your favorite coilover. I look forward to seeing new products from ISC in the future.

Initial Impression: When I heard these were coming out I was pretty excited. At the time I had the Kartboy Delrin, which is a great knob, but it felt to small in my hands. I could also only grip it 2 ways which didn't leave me much room for comfort. I chose the Purple Race knob. The color was perfect and the shape is great for any driving style.



Finish: The knob really exceeded my expectations. With a lot of products I have ordered, the color is never perfectly matching to the AD. This thing looked exactly as I thought it should! Its a nice deep purple that i think really pops against my STI interior. The shapes and contours of the knob are perfect and it feels awesome no matter what way you try to hold it.



Drivability: Ive had the knob on my car for a little over a week now. I must say the weight is great!. Its nice and heavy and makes shifting so much easier. I have always been a fan of heavier knobs and this seems to have the weight that I like.


Overal Impression: All in all I would say this knob is definitely worth the price. Its ISC's first shift knob and they have really surprised me with the quality of it. I can't wait to see what else they have coming up!

Initial Impression: I ordered the comfort ISC knob in blue and the first thing that caught my eye when I opened the box was def the color. The blue anodize really popped. The weight of the knob is def much heavier than my previous shift knob, but a very similar shape. When initially holding it in my hand, it seemed like it was a bit small compared to my current one. However, when placing them side by side they were the exact same size.

Finish: The Finish of the knob is very smooth and the anodized color is nice and bright. I would say its is pretty similar to WRB. My only gripe is the lettering on the top didnt face me 100% when the knob was fully torqued down. But after spacing up the shift boot enough the knob became pretty snug and I was able to get it where I wanted. I also like the fact that the color gave a nice contrast to my purple anodized jet engine seal around the boot.

Drivability: Ive noticed it is a bit easier to put the trans through the gears with the extra weight of this knob. I am unsure on weight comparison with the stock knob because I never ran one. The feel is about the same as my old one (due to them being the same size) but I am def a fan of this one more.

Overall Impression: Overall I am very pleased with this knob and would def recommend it to others; just like all the ISC products. I cant wait for spring to come so I can grab some ISC Coilovers for the Forester (to match my LGT) and some of their new spacers/adapters (depending on my wheel choice).










More low needed? hahah


The LGT is also on ISC Coilovers and very happy with these as well!!

Thanks for the nice reviews everyone!

Couple details and tips;
If you want you logo facing a special way on the knob, use some lock tight and it will hold it in place no problem (some want theirs at an angle, some horizontal with your vehicle, etc)

Also; the RACE has been confirmed to work on the 6spds (with the reverse lockout).

Race knob is located here:

Thanks!
